Dear Biomech'ers,

The Comparative Biomechanics Laboratory at Ohio University is interested
in purchasing a cineradiography or videoflouroscopy unit for studying
the movements of proximal limb bones (which are commonly encased by the
skin and fascia of the torso or, in the case of turtles, by the shell)
and vertebrae during terrestrial and arboreal locomotion in small-bodied
animals (e.g., lizards, primitive mammals). Most of our colleagues who
utilize "moving x-rays" have ancient cineradiography units that are no
longer on the market. We would like some direction from the listserv
members about:

1. Which cineradiography/videoflouroscopy units have you used, and have
you been satisfied with its performance?
2. What is the sampling rate of these units?
3. If you have evaluated the quality of the images generated
cineradiographically versus vidoeflouroscopically, which is superior
(and why)?

Thanks in advance,
